Another Snow Day

School is closed again today. I hope everyone is safe in this cold weather.

Things to do other than destroy your brains with devices or TV:

  • Go out and play in the snow, this may be the most you’ll see in your childhood (make sure you tell whoever is looking after you and are prepared for the weather)
  • Read
  • Write about your day off (any P7s who have written a blog post, and have their password, should write it up on this blog and I’ll post it)
  • Do some iXL maths (see homework link at the side)
  • Do some Spelling City (as above)
  • Find out more about our topic, history: GD Alfred the Great, DS King Canute, EA Edward the Confessor, JF William the Conqueror, MB Henry I, AC Richard I, DN Edward I, ChR Richard III, HM Henry VIII, LO Mary I, AM Elizabeth I, BO James VI & I, HA Charles II, RL Victoria and ON Elizabeth II.
  • Commit all of the dates on the sheet of Kings and Queens to memory, in preparation for your quiz next week
  • Draw, paint or create something
  • and anything else that requires thought, concentration and effort.

Bring any work in to present, like you do after holidays.

Best wishes and stay safe,

Mr A

Mr Mac’s Last Day

It’s Mr Mac’s last day and we wished him good luck.

 

The little class had all written good luck messages, which they read for Mr McIntyre.

Following that, the big class sang a song that they have learned as part of their Lochinvar Project.

Next the big class all performed a poem they wrote called: D’ ye mind ae Mr Mac?

Finally, Mr McIntyre gave a speech and said farewell.

Good luck Mr Mac and all the best!

From all at Brydekirk Primary

P5-7 Holiday Homework

Today is the last day of a busy first term.

After discussing Holiday Homework, here are some ideas:

Reading: library books have been issued.

Tin Whistle: 2 new tunes have been issued to any class members interested.

Otherwise, we discussed doing something related to any places you visit, for example a diary or journal. Anything Nonsense related would be fine, for example writing and illustrating a story using characters from a Nonsense poem. As ever anyone else who wants to work on their own project should do so and all work can be presented on the first week back. Of course those who want to set themselves a challenge on iXL or anything else should go for that too.

Make sure you have a good break too and enjoy your holiday.

Mr and Mrs Wilkins Visit

Mr and Mrs Wilkins came in to talk to the p1 – 4 class about the Diroms.  Mrs Wilkins wrote a book about the Diroms which the children have been using to learn more about the history of Brydekirk.  The children were all very interested in what Mr and Mrs Wilkins had to say and they all had some great questions to ask them both.  Thank you very much Mr and Mrs Wilkins.
